2009
Plastic sheet, packing tape, ink
290 x 183 cm

Sibony’s Untitled is a monumental assemblage of plastic wrapping and packing tape. Its overwhelming scale magnifies its fragile physicality, making its precarious presence simultaneously awesome and embarrassed. At first glance Sibony’s piece seems happenstance, as if the packaging of a work had been hung, rather than the work itself. The brown tape however, forms a rough image of a canvas on an easel; sketched out on the clear tarpaulin, Sibony’s witty conceptual game challenges expectations of perception and demythologises the processes behind art production – from the laborious work in the studio to final exhibition - making the creative methodology quite literally transparent.
